On May 25th, African Liberation Day is known as an international date to acknowledge the end of colonialism in Africa. Originally, this day began with the conference of independent African states held in Ghana back in 1958. It is meant as a day to reflect and chronicle the progress of African nations towards freedom. Just because colonialism ended doesn’t mean that full freedom was gained.
So we take today as an opportunity to reflect on this 54th anniversary of African Liberation Day. To learn more about this day, visit www.africanliberationday.net
